How Prezi is Changing Presentations

How Prezi is Changing Presentations | John Dewey | Scoop.it
Find out how Prezi is changing presentations – not just as a tool, but as a mindset.

"...I believe Prezi is more than just a presentation tool – it’s a symbol (and opportunity) for changing the way we approach presentations; and one more step along the road away from ‘death by PowerPoint’."

New Social Content Discovery Tool: Hopflow

New Social Content Discovery Tool: Hopflow | John Dewey | Scoop.it

Giuseppe Mauriello: Hopflow is web and iOS social content discovery app which seeks to connect users with a stream of content based on their personal interests. It is similar to other services like Prismatic and Trapit.

 

From reviewed article by The Next Web:

"Hopflow lets users Discover and share content through following specific topics rather than individual sources, and based on these interests, a personalized flow of stories from around the Web is reeled in.

 

You’ll need to sign up with your Twitter or Facebook credentials.

Hopflow scanned my Twitter history and, quite accurately, told me all the subjects I am indeed interested in.

 

You can, of course, manually select and deselect options as you see fit, and once you click ‘Done’, you’ll have a long stream of news stories based around your topics of interest. It’s like Twitter, except you follow topics rather than accounts, and this comparison is given further credence with the ‘Rehop’ feature which lets you share your news with others.

 

“The social Web is full of content platforms that force people to manually follow and filter through sources and information,” says Erez Pilosof, CEO and Founder of Hopflow. ” In this contextual age, people want tools that are simple and provide targeted information. We believe that discovering and sharing stories about the things that interest you shouldn’t be tedious and time consuming but rather fun and easy. Hopflow eliminates unwanted noise and allows users to sit back and enjoy a beautiful image-based ‘flow’ of relevant content outside of their current social networks.”

The New SEO Rules in a Content Marketing World

The New SEO Rules in a Content Marketing World | John Dewey | Scoop.it

Five years ago, SEO was all the buzz. Today, it has shifted to "content marketing," which aims to create stories humans want to read and engage with. - The above chart is a good summary of this trend.

Guillaume Decugis's curator insight, October 29, 2013 9:58 PM

This one slide alone summarizes the major trend of these past few years.


In other words, Social Media is becoming the new SEO. 


This has at least 2 consequences for Content Marketers:


1. Content Marketing is becoming more and more important: companies can't use old fashion backlinking techniques anymore.


2. Content needs to be shareable and target humans - not robots. In particular content curators who will amplify their content impact by adding the right context to the right audience.

Alison D. Gilbert's curator insight, October 30, 2013 7:33 PM

This is a good visual to explain the importance of good content.

Neil Ferree's comment, October 31, 2013 11:19 AM
Social Shares is the New SEO. Sure, links let the bots know there are other sites (authors) who find your content useful but when someone publically "shares" your content with their social connections, this social signals evokes trust in the author's content and authority.

12 Attributes of a Successful Content Curation Strategy

12 Attributes of a Successful Content Curation Strategy | John Dewey | Scoop.it

 

Excerpted from article by Heidi Cohen:

"Content curation is like a great editor who brings his unique taste and understanding of his target audience to his selection of the best content for his readers. He provides context for the content so that it’s more than collection of information.


Content curation chooses the most relevant, highest quality digital information to meet your readers’ needs on a specific subject. It involves a process of assembling, categorizing, commenting and presenting the top content.

 

Content curation is a core content marketing element for the following three reasons:

- Offering your audience a combination of original and third party content provides a branded -context for your work.
- Curating other people’s content positions you and/or your organization as a tastemaker in your field.
- Creating sufficient content is a marketing and business challenge.

 

Here are twelve attributes your content curation strategy should have to insure success.

1) Has defined, measurable goals...
2) Targets a specific audience...
3) Contains red meat content, not filler...
4) Follows “the less is more” theory...
5) Incorporates original content... 
6) Adds real value...
7) Has a human touch...
8) Provides branded context for your information... 
9) Involves a community...
10) Offers information in small chunks... 
11) Sticks to a schedule...
12) Credits its creator...

 

Content curation puts your original content in a branded context for your target audience..."

 

Each attribute is analyzed with more information. Read full article here: http://heidicohen.com/12-attributes-of-a-content-curation-strategy/

Danielle M. Villegas's curator insight, January 18, 2013 8:39 PM

This is a really good article about content curation. There is nothing wrong with doing content curation, as it provides insight from multiple sources. As this article points out, the trick is curating content that adds value to whatever it is that you are adding the content to. In my case, it's my blog. I've followed most of these guidelines instinctively, because I want to provide quality information to share with fellow technical communicators and e-learning specialists. 

 

Read this one carefully, as it's chock full of good advice.
